Jazz vocalist Youn Sun Nah receives award from French gov’t
By: JUNG JOO-RI AND LEE JIHAE

“Jazz vocalist Youn Sun Nah on Nov. 28 received the honor of Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters from the French Ministry of Culture at the French Embassy in Seoul.

Back in 2009, Nah received the order’s knight honor, which is a grade below that of officer. Her latest award is due to her consistent performances and contributions to culture and arts.

“Returning here today to receive this new distinction from France, the country where I studied music, found my way, began my career and was embraced by so many supporters, is yet another testimony to this rare, precious and unique relationship that binds us together. Thank you, France, my good star, for always being at my side,” she said at her reception ceremony held at the French Embassy Seoul.”
